    What do I do with the hard drive after? It seems like a waste, a Western Digital sexy looking thing....I paid £70 for it back in the day!
    Is it still under warranty?

    Don't do it all at once, I found that my external HDD disconnected itself during the transfer... I too had a faulty one.

    Yeah chunks... erm, say if you had 2 series of The Big Bang Theory, transfer each series 1 by 1 or depending on the size, you could do both at the same time. I'd say transfer ~10GB at a time.

    I think I had a faulty connection within the HDD caddy, so i couldn't say when it disconnect, it was pretty random. :dontknow:

    Transferring the data now...it seems to be going steady...fingers crossed! :o:

    It's worth getting it checked, it's free after all, except maybe you'd have to pay for P&P. Even still, it's within the warranty - you'd regret if it breaks down after the warranty.
